Military Appreciation Day
The Great Minnesota Get-Together is about halfway through and the hot and humid conditions aren’t keeping fair-goers away. There are plenty of ways to stay cool and have fun at the State Fair as we honored Military Appreciation Day.
Today is Military Appreciation Day at the Minnesota State Fair! Active and retired military members will be able to get into the fair for just $8.
What began as an event to honor the National Guard’s Red Bulls has evolved into a celebration honoring all branches of the Armed Forces. On Sunday, North Branch was the site of Military Appreciation Day. Young and old turned out to help raise money to support the men and women in uniform, serving across the globe.
It’s Military Appreciation Day out at the Minnesota State Fair. Gov. Mark Dayton made an appearance a little while ago at the Carousel Park stage to recognize recently returned service members from all branches of the military and their families.
